HOT Glue Easter Egg




A fairly simple Easter egg made out of hot glue.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need and/or want the following items...

-Hot Glue Sticks (LOTS!!!!!)
-Hot Glue Gun
-Plastic Easter Egg (The kind that breaks in two easily)
-Fat Max Razor
-Needle Nose Pliers

Step 2: Make the Base

Take the stubby half of your egg and fill it to the rim with hot glue. Make sure that you have a piece of paper under your working area to reduce the mess. Then allow it to dry.

Step 3: Make the Top Half

Fill the longer half of the egg to the rim and set aside to dry.

Step 4: Remove the Plastic

Grab the smaller end. Use the razor to cut the plastic and bend it enough for the pliers to be able to clamp on the plastic. Then peel the plastic away gradually. Caution, SHARP EDGES!

Step 5: REPEAT!

Repeat step 4 with the upper (elongated) half.

Step 6: Touch Ups!

Touch up each half by using the razor to flatten out severely uneven edges. (Don't get too picky!)

Step 7: Bond the Halves

Put a layer of hot glue on one half of the egg (on the flat side). Then take the other half (flat side) and stick it to the glue. Hold for a couple seconds. Then fill in all the cracks around the "binding" glue. You can use the metal part of the glue gun to smooth things out.

Step 8: Finish Up! Clean Up!

Make your finishing touches with the razor and glue gun. Allow your egg to cool. While it is cooling, put all your supplies away. Once the egg is cooled, have fun. You can decorate, play pranks, invent games, play catch, or do anything you would want to with a crude looking, artificial egg. Don't forget to leave comments!

    If you used clear hot glue you could drill a hole in the bottom/ insert an LED and coin cell and have it light up. Just a suggestion.

    I bet you could make a cool space invaders one or a yoshi one

    Actually, a razor knife is more accurate than 'stanley' knife. A stanley is a brand name, like a kleenex, etc. Neat project, but as iKill says; why not drill a hole in the top, and fill it? Lastly, if you lubricate the shell with either talcum powder, or cooking spray, the shell could come off easily without having to cut it. Good concept with good pictures - they could be improved with better lighting. A desk-lamp would make those a thousand times sharper.

    You say geek like its a bad thing, without us, you couldn't complain to us here on the IntErNetSS. Without us, you would still be hitting small, furry squirrels with rocks and eating them. I politely request that you return to commenting on all the lame youtube vids

    Hehehe, looking back at it, its not as done as I would have really intended it to be.

    Comment Revision: You say geek like its a bad thing. Without us, you couldn't complain to us here on the IntErNetSS. Without us, you would still be hitting small, furry squirrels with rocks and eating them raw because nobody bothered to invent fire.

    He didn't respond to anyone, also my comment was almost a year after his, so I was commenting on old news.

    Either way its funny.

    Yes, it is. I tracked him/her through his/her profile, and the only other comment he/she posted was a rude and ignorant statement about someone else.

    sentence has proper is has make. 1. If you want to come across as helpful, do not start with a 1-word 'insult'. 2. The point of instructables while partially is to 'gloat that you made something awesome', its mostly to share and improve your/an idea. My suggestion would undoubtedly make it so you have reusable molds with less work, more safety, and (imo) a better finished product. Also, I know not everyone is a pro-photographer, but virtually no effort in the right direction can make a good instrucable into a phenomenal instructable.


    Drilling a hole would have been much easier, but I didn't really plan out what I was going to do, so I ended up doing it the hard way.
